If You Go Looking for Trouble // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
There's a familiar saying, "If you go looking for trouble, you're sure to find it." The inverse of this is true as well. If you go looking for blessing you're sure to find it. The world is filled with good and evil and the reality we see is rarely the full and true reality; merely what we are looking for. However, if you can train yourself to look for both, you'll be more well balanced and see that life isn't out to get you. We're all far more blessed than we realize.

Over the years I've found these exercises to be extremely helpful for both my family life and also to help heal the wounds of the past. This is something you can do on your own, so I've put together a quick guide to help you understand how visualization exercises and therapy work.

So You Want to be a Rebel? // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
Every nation and group needs its rebels. Thankfully, the lines in the sand and the factions of men are becoming more clear. In this day and age, if you want to be a rebel, stand for truth and justice and God and traditional values. You'll see yourself outnumbered rather quickly, but not alone.

The Dangerous Draw of Group Think // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
In talking to a few friends the other night I had a realization about the power and draw of group think. For those who have not experienced it, once you have an understanding of what we're up against, you begin to realize why it is so hard to have a common sense discussion with someone who is entrenched in group thought.

The Most Dangerous Age // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
Age 35-45 is a most dangerous time. We either decide to stay on the path we're on, or we decide to make a move. In this episode I talk a bit about this critical time in our lives and why we need to be bold, not comfortable.

This Mask Situation // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
In this episode I rant a bit on the mask situation, nearly one year later after the 2 week "Let's flatten the curve, we're all in this together" we were told. Business owners have a great responsibility in situations like these.

Instinct and the Modern Man // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
We need a revival of instinct. Gut instinct, intuition...call it what you will. Modern man has been too long removed from his nature.

Healing the Past // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
You've likely seen it on movies: A man sits down with his therapist and is walked through his past memories in order to bring closure to his emotional trauma. However, this can be misleading as it is not necessary to remember the past in order to heal it. While a helpful tool, dredging up old memories simply helps us access emotions that we have not learned to process in a mature manner.

Decision Ownership // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
There is a type of personality that has a hard time accepting advice from others, be it our wives (especially our wives) or our peers. We want to reach conclusions on our own, often to the detriment of what may be best, and certainly not trusting in the strengths of others. This episode talks about a simple mindset shift that will allow you to own good advice while also not giving up your sense of autonomy.

Marketing Up (not Down) // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
Everyone complains about the impact the media and politicians have on our culture, but few people talk about the impact businesses have in their marketing strategies. It takes courage and probably more money than you want to spend, but I believe part of a business' responsibility is how we market. Are we trying to appeal to the lowest, or are we working to raise the bar and in so doing, raise the standard for what we see and hear on a daily basis.

Finding Fulfillment in Your Work // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
You've likely heard to follow your passion and you'll never work a day in your life. Or, don't follow your passion because if it becomes work you'll grow to hate it. Or, find a job to pay the bills so you have money to do what really makes you happy. Pretty simple, right? Regardless of the path taken, many men find themselves in a job or business that doesn't fulfill them. Here are some thoughts on how to find fulfillment in your work.

Why Men Pick on Each Other // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
It's inevitable. When a group of men get together and they begin to feel a bit of ease around one another, they will pick on each other. Some guys relish in this, others can't stand it. Some of you likely feel like you're the guy always getting picked on and rarely doing the picking. While there are mature and immature ways to go about this, I wanted to share some thoughts on what is going on within the relationship (that we're often not aware of) and how it can be good for comradery.

America vs. American // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
In the last several years, America's worst citizens have been on constant display. Rather than showcasing true American values, we show American citizens behaving in very un-American ways and then call that "America".

I Used to Be Fat // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
When I hit 230lbs, I knew I had to make a change. I'm no fitness model, but I've been able to maintain a healthy weight for well over a decade. Fads are fun, but if you want to make a long term difference, you've got to change your mindset about yourself, your relationship with food, and your lifestyle will follow.

Disrupting Patterns in the New Year // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
Special Edition! First episode in the 1977 Wagoneer! Each new year allows for a milestone in our lives and can be a great time to pause, reflect, and take stock of where we are and who we desire to be. In this episode, I talk a bit about the Wagoneer, but also about recognizing patterns in our lives. Every man has patterned behavior that should become more clear over time. When we learn to see these patterns, we have the opportunity to disrupt them and get on a different track; one that leads to being the man we desire to be.

Christmas Thoughts // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
Merry Christmas! In this episode I share some thoughts on Christmas and its often melancholy nature it sometimes inspires. While Christmas is filled with lots of cheer and love and thoughts about family and Jesus, there seems to be an accompanying stream of sadness that shows up at this time of year.

The Reverse Hierarch of Needs // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
We are at a time when many of the basic needs have been met, but it feels rather artificial to many men. We've lost a direct connection in providing for our fundamentals and it can lead to anxiety and unsureness for us as we seek to better ourselves.

The Problems Men Face // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
Here's the thing: men have real issues. You're not alone in this. While I will never champion a victim mentality, it's healthy and good to recognize and name the things we're battling against. Here are some of the challenges men all around you face on a daily basis, and the first step to overcoming them.

Happy Thanksgiving! // TRUCK TALK THURSDAY
Although 2020 has been a crazy year (and it's not over yet) there is a lot we can still be thankful for. Take a moment to thank God for your health, your friends and family, your dog, and maybe even your cat.
